Thank you for your support of A Gift From China. In addition to our monthly support of foster care, education & medical relief for orphans here is some recent news of how we have been able to help children in China’s orphanages:
January 2008 A Gift From China donated 10,000rmb to Children’s Hope International for their winter relief fund. Many orphanages in central
China were affected by the harsh winter weather that came in January & February. The funds enabled CHI to purchase warm winter clothes & extra provisions for the children in Wuhan.
In May we began supporting relief efforts to help children affected by the
Sichuan earthquake. (More...)
Your support means that we can quickly respond to requests to help children who come into orphanages needing urgent medical help.
Fei Fei and Ting Ting are two children who recently needed the specialist care of surgeons in
Ting Ting has made an excellent recovery from her heart surgery & is now back with her foster family in NW China.
Fei Fei has had initial treatment and though she will need to return to Shanghai when she is a little older, she is back with her foster family and doing well.
Thank you for your support!
Mulati was abandoned at the age of three. He is profoundly deaf & this may have been the reason his parents felt they could not look after him, though we cannot know for sure.
Mulati requires specialist cochlear implants with a follow on of about 1 – 1 & half years of rehabilitation training. We have committed to helping Mulati reach this goal because to gain hearing and speech will mean all the difference to this brave young boy’s future. The sooner that Mulati can have the surgery means that the chances of successful rehabilitation are higher. The cost of the surgery and rehab is substantial and we are aiming to raise US$38,000. As soon as we have reached a 50% target we will in faith go ahead & get Mulati’s treatment started.
Each month A Gift From China supports a number of minority orphans to continue their education & to date 95 young people have benefited from our program.
Each month A Gift From China supports the purchase of best quality baby milk for 5 orphanages and associated foster care projects.
A Gift From China supports many initiatives that we have to ensure orphanage caregivers receive regular training in therapy practices and ongoing training for understanding the psychological needs of the children. In 2007 we hosted 2 ‘Transform’ teaching sex education programs & in June 2008 we hosted an ‘understanding autism’ training program in Urumqi N China. Throughout the year we send caregivers to programs that are being conducted around
